The cool kids may have gone to Shoreditch but Soho remains the buzziest place in the West End for dinner. The sheer variety of cuisines on offer in this tiny geographical area – less than a square kilometre – is exciting. Sure, the tables will be timed in a lot of restaurants, but don't let them hurry you. Soho is still media central, and with the BBC returning to its Portland Place headquarters a few years ago and private members' clubs like the Groucho, Soho House and Blacks thriving, you're very likely to pass famous faces walking around its streets. Don't be daft and ask for a selfie, it's not very Soho. After dinner, it's worth catching some comedy at the Soho Theatre where the room sizes offer an intimate setting for a laugh. The comedians often hang out at the theatre's bar afterwards.
